50 Free Android Apps Being Used In Education Right Now
I’ll admit it. I’m a fan of Apple products. But that doesn’t mean I don’t yearn for some of the fabulous features on Android phones too. Until the day when Apple and Google merge (ha!), we’re left with a split marketplace of apps. Edudemic doesn’t cover Android as much as it deserves so this useful list should be a helpful start. I’ve searched around for each of these apps and found interesting stories on how most are being used in classrooms and education right now.

30 Trends In Education Technology For 2015 Via TeachThought What’s trending up for 2015 school year in terms of education technology? iPads are still the standard but other platforms are making headway. That should be fun to watch over the next 3-5 years. Educators are getting better at spotting crap edtech, but waste still abounds. Schools are getting better at thinking tech-first (not in terms of priority, but design). Apps are getting downright brilliant in spots, but in-app purchasing? Below are 30 entirely subjective but hopefully somewhere close to reality takes on what’s trending up and what’s trending down in education and education technology for 2015 and beyond. Note that this list isn’t an endorsement–meaning this isn’t necessarily the way I think things should be, but rather what they seem to be–at least from my vantage point, right here, right now. What’s trending up, what’s trending down, and what’s in that awkward middle ground of education and education technology? Trending Up Awkward Middle Ground Trending Down

Back to School App-pack The image above was created using PhotoshopTouch on an iPad and was then uploaded to Thinglink to create the hotspots. The summer is quickly winding down & a number of teachers will be returning to their classroom with new mobile devices (iPads). Throughout the summer I have been conducting workshops on iPad integration with EdTechTeacher and I thought it might be helpful to pull together a back to school list of apps structured around specific classroom goals. While many schools may already have an Apple VPP program already in place, I know a number of teachers will also be purchasing the apps themselves. I want my students to create & publish video: iMovie (4.99) - record, edit and publish movies directly to the web from iMovie. I want my students to respond to polls / take quizzes: Socrative (teacher & student app - free) - This free platform allows for teachers to create and begin quizzes directly from an iPad. Garage Band (4.99) - Record, edit and publish audio content from the iPad.

As part of getting my feet wet, my principal suggested I “be” a student for two days: I was to shadow and complete all the work of a 10th grade student on one day and to do the same for a 12th grade student on another day. My class schedules for the day (Note: we have a block schedule; not all classes meet each day): The schedule that day for the 10th grade student:
